The Wild Coast is the dangerous, western shores of Avokhar, where the continent meets the waters of the Shining Sea.


The Wild Coast of Avokhar is located on the eastern shores of the Shining Sea, and borders the Rockdale region further inland to the east.

This entire coastal region was first colonized by the Ralani in the Fourth Age and is home to the powerful republic of Kendar, and the smaller city-states of Caldera and Sasserine.

Other settlements located on the Wild Coast include: Shard, Stonehaven, Castle Greenrock and Port Blackwell.

HISTORY


The Wild Coast region has a long and storied history, stretching back over 4,000 years. The regional history can broken down into several eras.

The Shadurian era


The Wild Coast and the adjacent Rockdale region were first settled about 4,000 years ago by a group of people called the Shadurians, who hailed from the city of Garuda; the capitol of the ancient nation of Sha'Dur. The Shadurians spread across the region, founding many settlments; the most famous of which was called "Nas'krii."

For over 1,000 years, the Wild Coast and the Rockdale were colonies of Sha'Dur. That all changed when Sha'Dur was conquered by the Eloysian Empire in the year AR 237. The city of Nas'krii also came under imperial domination at that time.

The Eloysian era


For nearly 1,700 years, the region was a northern province of the Eloysian Empire, until that Empire began to decay. Beset by political intrigue, internal strife, and several civil wars, the Eloysian Empire collapsed in AR 2079. Around this same era, Nas'krii was invaded by an unknown enemy and destroyed.

The Ralani colonization


The Ralani people of Corwyn had long been great sea-farers. In the year 359/4, King Axilar Sanborn of Ralas sailed south from Rastios and began his great expedition, which resulted in the discovery of the continent of Avokhar. Along the way, Axilar founded a series of colonies on the Wild Coast that would one day grow into the Republic of Kendar.

Centuries later, the Kingdom of Ralas was wracked by a terrible civil war. This bloody conflict had several important historical effects. First, it allowed Kendar to declare its independance from Ralas, and second, it led to the founding of the city of Sasserine on Wyvern Bay by a group of pilgrims trying to escape the horrors of that war.
